If you read this blog I wanted to encourage you to also follow me on Facebook (VeganViola) or Twitter (@VeganViola) if you don’t already do so. I share so many more resources, articles, and pictures there than I do on this blog. For some reason my Tweets are not coming through on the blog like they are supposed to (Technical Support!!!). Whenever I find something of interest I post it on social media to help get the word out about the benefits of a plant based diet — benefits to you, animals, and the planet.
Today I posted a “cheat sheet” on The China Study, the most important research published on this topic — if you don’t have time to read the book this article is an excellent summary of the highlights you need to know.
This one is the most alarming to me: Animal protein promotes the growth of cancer. The book author T. Colin Campbell, PhD., grew up on a dairy farm, so he regularly enjoyed a wholesome glass of milk. Not anymore. In multiple, peer-reviewed animal studies, researchers discovered that they could actually turn the growth of cancer cells on and off by raising and lowering doses of casein, the main protein found in cow’s milk.
For the skeptics out there: The study findings are bulletproof. After years of controversial lab results on animals, the researchers had to see how they played out in humans. The study they created included 367 variables, 65 counties in China, and 6,500 adults (who completed questionnaires, blood tests, etc.). “When we were done, we had more than 8,000 statistically significant associations between lifestyle, diet, and disease variables.” In other words, there’s no arguing with the findings, Meat Council of America. Sorry.
